I'm Off to the Galapagos Islands!
I always feel that a planned trip becomes real for me when I have to wet my hand and rub it all over by day pack to get rid of all the long black fur from my cat Twyla, who loves my day pack.
Paul Kurtz e-mailed us to say that, due to his heart surgery in March, he cannot make the trip. That's not a surprise, but it is too bad. Richard Dawkins is still coming, of course.
On this trip, as on every trip, I'm taking too many books. I'm taking the requisite Origin of Species, of course, and Galapagos, A Natural History, as well as How Brains Make Up Their Minds by Walter J. Freeman, so that I can finally answer Crandaddy's questions, and The Extended Phenotype, by Dawkins. I'll finally get to finish it.
Oh, and I received two A's this semester! Woot! I was sweating it, because getting an A and a B last time put me right at the edge of the requirement.
I don't expect to be able to blog and check e-mail while down there so be good, all of you. Good like me, that is!
Whatever that means!
